First opened in 1934, the 18-hole Maxwell Municipal Golf Course spans 6,129 yards of well-manicured, tee-to-green terrain. Prolific course designer Dave Bennett sculpted Maxwell Municipal's green corridors to create a course of moderate difficulty, making the links surmountable for fledgling duffers, still challenging for scratch golfers, and the earthen equivalent of a soul mate for club wielders of precisely average ability. The course's recently resurfaced bermuda-grass greens invite pinpoint pitches and clever bump-and-runs, and a newly refurbished cart path expedites white-orb search parties conducted from behind the wheel of a trusty golf cart.
Golfing guests may host a post-mortem practice session after their round at the driving and short game range, or recapitulate each stroke over a tasty snack at the course's self-serve snack bar (not included in today's Groupon). For those who want to take their golf romance to the next level, the pro shop offers all manner of brand-name golf clubs, lesson opportunities, and flagstick-size promise rings.
Maxwell Municipal Golf Course
Maxwell Municipal Golf Course's 18-hole layout provides a challenge for players of all ability levels. A lake threatens approach shots on several holes, and a steam snakes along and across fairways, forcing players to choose clubs wisely. The course plays at 6,129 yards from the back tees and 5,031 from the forward tees; be sure to hit the driving range and chipping area before your round to warm up. Grab a soda and a candy bar at the turn for a burst of energy going into the back nine.
